Stand up for Canada

Tories tighten rules for foreign strippers:


OTTAWA — The Conservative government says it is taking action to keeping foreign strippers out of Canada.


Not surprisingly, the Globe comments section is abuzz with one liners. Among the highlights:


The Harper "conservatives" are not SOFT on foreign strippers.


Clearly the Conservatives are governing by the poles.


The govts. going to get lots of heat over this one. Can you imagine going to a bar to see "Canadian" strippers? Uggh!


What do the Tories have against foreign strippers all of a sudden? They SEEM to enjoy them, I mean whenever I see a Tory MP in a strip bar in Ottawa or Toronto they LOOK like they're having a good time.


Why do the Tories hate Romania?


FINALLY a federal government is going to deal with the foreign stripper problem. for too long this government has been tinkering with the tax code, environmental legislation and that bothersome war that the media won't shut up about. far better to leave those half finished and unattended to confront the real threat to canada..... foreign strippers.


I'll also bet Ignatieff doesnt even know what they're talking about here.


Why should our stripper industry (which some co workers from out of the country claim is the best on the world!) be assailed by cheap, un professional, half as good looking foreign strippers?


This is clearly evidence of the Harper govts. "hidden agenda"


SAY NO TO FOREIGN WORKERS and support home grown.


Is this in retaliation for Romania's banning Canadian strippers? Or is it another ploy in free trade negotiations? Are Romanian strippers unfairly subsidized? Don't Canadian strippers get Canada Council grants or some other such cultural program grant in Quebec?


This is fantastic news! For too long we have neglected the development of our own Canadian based strippers. I am looking forward to a new domestic crop which doesn't try to marry me everytime I purchase a lap dance.



If this passes, exactly who is going to canvass for Liberal cabinet ministers during election campaigns? This seems so mean spirited!


I can see it now as a summer replacement series on CTV - 'The Next Great Canadian Stripper'. Is Ben Mulroney looking for a summer hosting gig?

  • Now that those boring 5 priorities are out of the way, it's time to get down to the real business of governing the nation.

    Right?

    Riiiiight...

  • You missed jokes about anti-dumping laws AND dropping trade barriers. I'm going back to only reading Andrew Coyne - he would never disappoint me in that way.

  • Well of course they are going to ban foreign strippers. Everybody knows that Conservatives prefer to see their foreign strippers in their native habitat.

    Here, is this some kinda of so-phistica-ted joke?

    By Blogger JimTan, at 2:39 AM  

  • I don't have any problem - I think it's a good idea.

  • OT

    There is no physical space to seat the 22 new MPs proposed by the Conservatives to boost effective representation from the rapidly growing provinces of Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia.

    When was this proposed? I missed it completely.

  • After changes made by the Liberals, there has been a veritable flood of about 10 or fewer foreign exotic dancers coming to Canada.

    The Immigration Minister claims this is "getting things done for Canadians". Sixteen months. One policy. Addressing 10 people. Value for money?

  • this is retarded. binging in hot eastern euro rippers is way better for the country than importing radical muslim terrorists. c'mon these are regular women just trying to make a few bucks and look good in the process!

    this is all a waste of time, we need real immigration reform like a moritorium on refugee claims and immigration from muslim countries.

    By Blogger Clayton, at 11:26 AM  

  • Yeah, this is really a redundant law.

    Jason; They brought the bill forward last week. It would actually come into play for another 7 or 8 years.

  • I don't know...is this WTO legal? I mean, economic nationalism was cool 30 years ago, but economies of scale, supply and demand and all that. I can't imagine that we're going to look very good in 15-20 years when our strippers can't compete with foreign ones.

    says the ignorant racist.

  • canuckistanian
    I agree.
    We need to open the doors to strippers from muslim countries.

    By Blogger Dante, at 1:34 PM  

  • says the ignorant racist.

    right... so because i understand that since we are at war against a group of people that we shouldn't let them in it makes me a racist? sure that makes a lot of sense mr canuckistanian... IF YOU'RE A MASOCHIST!

    you're just not seeing the big picture that we need to make sure our country is safe before we have the luxury of being politically correct. face the fact that there are psychos islamofacists in this world who want to kill us - partially becuase we like to look at eastern european rippers get naked while we get hammered! it makes sense that instead of blocking the rippers from coming in we block the psychopaths! how bout growing up a but canuckistanian!

    By Blogger Clayton, at 3:36 PM  

  • Dan, thanks.

    As an attempt to illuminate the dark cave that passes for your mind, I will point out that we are not at war against all Muslims. So if your crazy rant about blocking all immigration from Muslim countries doesn't paint you as a racist, it certainly confirms your status as an ignoramus.

  • Ummmm, I guess no one cares about the (s)exploitation of these immigrants? Or is it just too much fun to make insensitive jokes and score cheap political points?

    By Blogger The Rat, at 11:58 AM  

  • the rat; This bill doesn't do anything to help these women or stop exploitation. All it says is:

    1 - we think Canadian women should be exploited instead of foreign women.

    2 - these women should stay in their country where they are 10 times more likely to be exploited.

    By Blogger calgarygrit, at 3:28 PM  

  • Jeez, I hope they don't plan on using Dianne Finlay instead...uggggghly!
